Litter picking

In an average week between 40 and 60 sacks full of litter are dropped in Covingham. This is the amount of litter that is picked up in your Parish. We work very hard to keep Covingham tidy. Please do your bit by either putting your litter in one of the many bins provided, or taking it home and putting it in your refuse bin.

Emptying of Dog Bins and Litter Bins

There are 14 dog waste bins which are emptied every week.

There are 20 waste bins that are emptied most days. Our thanks go to those of you who place their litter in the bins. Please note that these bins are provided for litter only, please dispose of Domestic Waste in your wheelie bin or recycling boxes provided by Swindon Borough Council

Hedge Trimming

The parish will trim hedges on an annual basis. Growth at other times of the year will be cut back if it presents as a hazard.

Road Sweeping

Roads within Covingham are professionally swept twice a year. They are swept in July and again in late autumn after the leaves have dropped.

Checking Dorcan Stream for level and blockages

 Regular checks are made along Dorcan Stream to check for blockages and other potential flood risks.
